2015 Governor General's Literary Awards: Winners

(I know I spent much time online congratulating the winners of the 2015 Governor General Literary Awards when they were announced October 28, 2015, but I just noticed that I failed to post those winners here.  Can't believe I was so remiss.  So here they are, two months late.)

The Governor General's Literary Awards are Canada's national book awards, honouring the best of our literature in seven categories, in both official languages.  On October 28, 2015, the winners of the 2015 Governor General's Literary Awards were announced on the Canada Council website.
